VILLUPURAM: A married maths teacher of Ulundurpettai Government Higher Secondary School allegedly sexually abused a plus two girl student and “married” her at a temple in Melmaruvathur, only to ditch her a few days later.

On Wednesday night, the girl registered a complaint with the Villupuram SP alleging that Sankar abandoned her.

After completing plus one last year, 18-year-old Rani (name changed) joined a tuition centre in Ulundurpet where Sankar (37) taught maths to plus two students. Sankar is also the maths teacher in Rani’s school.

It is said that during tuition Sankar asked Rani to go to his house nearby to fetch water for the students.

When Rani went to fetch water, Sankar followed her and sexually abused her.

Advocate and human rights activist Lucia said, “Sankar told the girl that he cannot live without her. He sexually abused her many times at his house. Consequently, she got pregnant and underwent an abortion. He assured her that he will marry her after her exams and would help her with higher studies. After the exam, he took her to a temple and married her.”

Sankar’s wife, who is also a teacher, was at her mother’s house as she delivered of a baby recently. On hearing about the developments, she arrived in Ulundurpet and confronted them. She allegedly beat up the girl and fought with her husband.
